Towing mirrors

I have a 2003 Toyota Tundra and I'm wondering if anyone has a good suggestion for towing mirrors. There seems to be quite a selection available and I'd like to know if anyone has had a good experience with any particular type. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

I can't say enough about how good the Aero mirrors are. See our write up

We also use the Aero mirrors on our 2012 Tundra to good effect.
Amazon.com: JR Products 2912 Grand Aero Towing Mirror - Pair: Automotive
Easy to remove and install. Also they clear the side window glass when the OE manual mirrors are folded back.

"Based on recommendations from this site, we just purchased a set of Aero mirrors for our Sienna. Haven't used them yet, but they fit really well. We'll know more after we pick up our 19' in June.

I have Tow 'N' See mirrors and the Aero mirrors.
Less vibration with the Aero, more mirror surface and they can be adjusted independent of the OE mirrors.

We also use the Grand Aero mirrors and find they work well

We are pleased with the extra visibility the Grand Aero mirrors provide also; even using just one is adequate.

At least I can order a replacement mirror!

Costco Canada has the Aero mirrors (2 styles) online, among some other interesting camping products. Their prices include delivery, and their warranty is second to none.

Tow Mirrors

Well, thanks for all the help. You folks made my decision easy. I just purchased a set of the Grand Aero mirrors. Thanks for all the comments, it's nice getting information from veteran's as I've never towed before and your experienced insights are a big help.
